The first half of 2018 had been very eventful for AMICASSA. Moving towards July, several activities were launched in celebration of the 10th year anniversary.
On the first working day, employees were welcomed with a personalized trinket and treat along with a message from the AMICASSA president, Ms. Divine Lopez. She then emphasized how everyone have been tirelessly working on the lead towards this important milestone with several program and activity launches for the past years. This signified a whole quarter of activities that were focused on employee appreciation. A wall installation entitled “Life Wall” was launched at the different site offices of AMICASSA on February 26. This installation showcased the core values employed by the company and its employees. “Cheers for Peers”, a wall installation used as a venue for displaying appreciative and motivational messages towards employees was subsequently launched two days later. Last March 9, employees were rewarded with an overnight stay with their family at Seda Vertis North.
Amicassa also held a 3-month-long Intercolor tournament that engaged employees in a series of physical activities. The opening ceremony was held on the 16 th of March with a chant competition and relay games. Badminton and volleyball matches were then held on May 18 and July 12.
More activities catering to different aspects of work and life integration were held for the second quarter. The month of April ended with a Back to School sale in partnership with National Bookstore that gave employees access to basic school and office supplies at a discounted and affordable price. In compliance with Occupational Safety and Health and with the aim to rally a drug-free work environment by spreading awareness amongst employee, AMICASSA hosted a two-day seminar for Tuberculosis and Drug Awareness last May 7 and 8, 2018. Highlighting one of the company Core Values, Malasakit, a humanitarian activity by means of bloodletting was organized to educate employees on the benefit of donating blood. Mid-June, all the activities successfully came to a head with a fun and competitive activity. The Corporate Quiz Bee challenged employees’ knowledge on AMICASSA history and processes, as well as general information.
Indeed, it was a jam-packed and eventful first half for AMICASSA. With a few months remaining before the year ends, more activities are anticipated to happen that will enrich the work-life balance of AMICASSA employees.
